Marsh Catwalk

By: digitalfish Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Micro

3:54 pm - We've always wanted to explore some of these, but they always seem to be off-limits. The walk down this long catwalk was fun. The cache was a bit of a challenge too! Thanks!

Three Towers

By: digitalfish Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Micro

4:16 pm - This place is a lot further away than it looks from parking! We had an nice walk though. Thanks for the cache!

Ravenswood Parking

By: Pal_Al (adopted by digitalfish) Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

3:38 pm - Found this one quickly. Thanks for the parking tip!

View With A Bridge

By: digitalfish Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

4:30 pm - When leaving from the parking area, we decided to go around the "loop" clockwise. It wasn't until we got here that we realized it wasn't a loop at all and we had a long walk back around ahead of us. Oh well, it was good to be outside. Thanks!

The End Of The Trail

By: markjarvis Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

3:02 pm - This was a nice walk up here even while dodging flying golf balls. We almost gave up on searching for the cache, but found it in a break between golfers. The coordinates were very good. TNLN. Thanks!

Whimsical Wonders (HMB)

By: GeoWomyn_SF_CA Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

1:35 pm - When we arrived, we found the cache occupied. We waited in the car for a bit and wondered what was taking them so long. We read the description and then understood. When they finished, I walked over and asked them how it came out. It was the Carmirezs' first cache and I told them it was a good one.
We drew a tomato man with peas for arms and legs and a pumpkin hat. Too many crafty things at the pumpkin festival I guess. TNLN. Thanks for the repeat visit to this relocated cache!

Ocean View Park

By: vaccine Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

3:28 pm - Super-quick one for me. Back to the pumpkin festival traffic!

A Railroad Ran Through It

By: PurplePeople Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

2:24 pm - We looked for this one on our way down to the beach and came up empty. On the walk down I had the chance to read up on the old logs and think about it some more.
On the way back I looked for several minutes before I found the tiny container. I guess it just wasn't what I was looking for. Thanks!

Restown Cache

By: CatBert Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

2:54 pm - I had some lunch with the Pawtuxent Gang before my flight home and I had one requirement - find one cache in VA so I could add it to the list of states I've cached in. We stopped in Reston Town Center and I wasn't surprised to find a cache 500 feet away! We took the stairs up and searched the wrong level at first. Really interesting container. TNLN. Thanks!

By: Ice G8r Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Virtual

By: mtn-man from Georgia Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Virtual

12:26 pm - This place gives me chills. I don't think I've been here since I was a kid. Reading these logs is incredible. Thank you.

Well I declare....

By: Howling Wolf Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Virtual

12:17 pm - I found the required info quickly after circumnavigating the pool. As I was leaving I saw some other cachers reading the desciption. I decided not to disturb them and instead continued on to other caches. Thanks!
